    Wickwoman's Dodge of the Day!

    Wickwoman’s Comments:

    Interesting phrasing. "Spend eternity with Clete worshipping his God . . . spend eternity with God and all us Christians. . . "

    Does that include, Dave Miller, Chileice. If so, I'd say yes I'd enjoy an eternity with that kind of Christian. With the Clete's and the Turbo's? I think not.

    And let's talk about this. Is eternity the only benefit of your faith? Because it seems to me that's all many Christians have to offer - escape from eternal torment. There are those of use who would like to have better lives right now. There are those of us who want to be better people. We want to be more compassionate and loving, more patient and kind. We want to make a difference in the lives of the poor and the disenfranchised. But what we see of most Christians is mostly rude behavior, intolerance, and unkindness. And we can be like that without your religion.

    Wickwoman’s Comments:

    Actually, most of us want nothing to do with YOUR RELIGION. And that's separate and apart from the true God, if one exists. Do not confuse our lack of association with your religion with a lack of desire to know God. They do not go hand in hand necessarily.

    It's a simple exercise in logic. People who are interested in the Christian slant on God look to see what affect the belief system has on the Christians. And when we see what it does or doesn't do, we go running from the Cletes of the world. It's easy to be a Clete - we don't need religion for that. But a Dave Miller, a Lovejoy or a Chileice, well that's another thing altogether.

    And here’s the now famous dodge:

    People who have made their religion into their God will not be able to understand you when you try to explain to them that you are rejecting their religion, and not rejecting God. To them, these are the same things. To you and I, they are not the same thing at all.

    You know, you can just ask for the bad rep and someone will give it to you. It would be easier!

    Looks like you've rejected both. What can one say?

    One could say that you're blind, I suppose. Or one could say that you only see what you want to see so that you can feel superior to others. Or one could just generalize and call you an idiot ... if one we so inclined.

    Yes. Funny how it seems so clear to us and many others on the "outside." But to many insiders, not so much.

    Nah! It doesn't really matter. Though I like those little green squares. They mean nothing in real life. Only in cyber world. But I noticed an interesting trend and now I intend to be "in your face." (Not YOUR face, per se. It's just a phrase. )

    If God is as described in the Bible and Christians are in heaven for all eternity?

    No, absolutely not. I would not want to spend an eternity in such an afterlife.

    If you'd read the post then you'd have seen that I'm not rejecting Christ, I'm rejecting the behavior of many Christians. I don't even know what you are talking about when you talk of a choice of "many true gods." Is that what you think I believe? I don't even know for sure if there is ONE god. Much less, many.
